To All Chapter Members,

Welcome to the National Contract Management Association, Cape Canaveral Chapter 2016-2017 program year!

The Chapter Board of Directors has been hard at work developing a great program with two areas of focus: quality and outreach. First, quality. While in recent years the Chapter has provided quality training, through monthly dinner workshops and our flagship event (whether it was a Winter Education Conference or a National Educational Seminar), this program year the Board has decided to double-down in our investment in YOU, by inviting top notch speakers from out of town for the monthly dinner workshops and providing a more robust flagship event. We believe this initiative is well worth the investment.

Second, outreach. This year the Board has decided to push in all areas of outreach to include looking inward, or “in reach.” There are many government contractors moving to or expanding in the local area. This fact is true not only with large companies but also with medium and small companies. One of the activities we are conducting to attract new members is to host a monthly dinner workshop in the Cape Canaveral area in the February 2017 timeframe. Please watch for details as they become available.

And last, in reach. Did you know the Chapter has approximately 195 current members with 60 of our members holding a certification, which includes fifteen Fellows? But only fifteen percent (15%) of the membership is actively involved. This year the Board is looking at ways to increase our volunteer and attendance rates. One way we will achieve this is through awareness, by posting the Board Officers, Chairpersons, and Program Year Calendar on the Chapter’s website (including Chapter needs in each of the foregoing areas). In doing so, you will be able to ask yourself, “How can I get involved?” and, “Which meetings am I interested in attending?” by reviewing all volunteer, training, and social networking opportunities. To the extent possible, this information will be updated and included in the quarterly newsletters.

I hope you are as excited as we are for this program year, as we implement the initiatives described above, as well as share with you many details for what is in store for our valued members.

Here’s to a great program year!

Sincerely,
Brian W. Curry
President
NCMA, Cape Canaveral Chapter
